It seems like stress is becoming more and more common today, and is a topic that is brought up a lot. We all have busy lives and go to bed with a to-do list running through our heads for the next day, right? It’s important to note that stress actually has a bigger impact on our health than you might think, and it takes more than just a bubble bath to really relieve or reverse the effects stress has on our wellbeing. (Having said that, bubble baths are definitely encouraged!)
It’s estimated that around 80% of doctor visits are related to chronic stress. Stress comes in many forms and differs from person to person. Most common forms of stress are work or family related; however, a poor diet and lack of sleep can also send the brain negative signals which in turn produce stress hormones. The simple fact is stress is just a thought and one that we control. We have the power to change the perception of any situation but it’s not always as simple as that. Below are some helpful tips to help you relieve stress and create more balance.
Overtime, stress can weaken the immune system, causing greater susceptibility to illness. It can tighten muscles and cause chronic pain and frequent headaches.It can also lead to a low libido and in some cases depression. Prioritize yourself, your health, and well-being. It really will have a huge impact on not just your own mental health but also your physical health. Showing up for yourself will improve the way you show up for others. It will make you a better parent, partner, friend or whatever it is that you are. You DO deserve to feel good and be happy.
